Everyone meet Laurel. He is a sweet, smart hound mix that loves everyone.

Laurel has had a rough start at life. He came into the local animal control in Jonesboro, Arkansas when he was just a puppy. Everyone kept looking over him and for some reason he never got adopt. He got pulled to be a Paws dog and when he was about to travel north to a new foster home he tested positive for heartworm.

Laurel loves his southern foster mom but is ready to find a home of his own. He has gone through heartworm treatment and is now ready to look for that person that will love him forever.

Laurel loves other dogs. He is rambunctious and can play a little rought at times. He is helping his foster mom teach a litter of 8 lab puppies how to play at the moment.

He is working on his obedience training, crate and house training. He is doing awesome at the all. Laurel does have a dog door, so he will need an adjustment period in his new home.

Laurel loves the little people that come and visit. He spends hours with them just trying to do what they do.

Laurel will need someone committed to his continued training and give him all the love he can handle.

Interested in a specific dog, please fill out an application if you are interested in a dog. The number of individual inquiries is overwhelming and we are finding it difficult to respond to each one. We cannot guarantee you will receive a timely response.
Paws New England is a rescue, not a shelter, and as such we do not have our dogs housed in one location - they are in foster homes both in New England and in our southern foster homes.   If you’re interested in a specific dog, please complete a short online application and you will receive a reply within 48 hours so you can ask questions.
At present, if a dog is listed on our website, the dog is considered still available HOWEVER, may have applications that have come in before yours but it’s still too early to know if any are a good match; therefore we encourage you to apply.
NOTICE WITH REGARD TO LOCATION OF DOGS:  Please note: Paws New England is a foster-based rescue. We do not have a brick and mortar building to house the dogs we rescue. We have found that dogs in foster homes are much more adoptable because they have been observed in a home setting. Dogs listed with Paws New England typically reside in various locations throughout the south (primarily Tennessee, Texas, and Arkansas) and New England (not necessarily in the state of Rhode Island). You will be notified by the adoption coordinator of the location of the dog you are interested in so you have the ability to decide whether to pursue adoption or not.

Dogs transported to New England are done so at a fee of $150.00 paid directly to the transporting company by Paws New England; no additional transport costs are responsibility of adopter. This fee is included in the adoption donation.

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your dog will help others in need.

All known information about the animal is listed above. We do our best to give accurate information, but most of our dogs are rescues and do not come with a known history.

Paws New England abides by the dog importation regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, NH and RI.
